50K Bonus on Southwest Plus, Premier and Business Premier

All three Southwest credit cards are again offering a 50,000 point signup bonus. Keep in mind that all three cards fall under the 5/24 rule and this is not the best timing for Southwest’s Companion Pass.

Southwest Cards

The personal Premier card has often had the 50K  offer available, but the Plus card is a rare sight. The Premier Business card, also has the 50K offer often, but there’s been a higher offer of 60K previously.

The cards come with an annual fee, $99 for the Premier cards and $69 for the Plus card. None of them is waived for the first year and will be charged to the card at the end of the first billing cycle.

Bonus offers are not available to current cardmembers of the specific credit card, or previous cardmembers of the specific credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for the credit card within the last 24 months.

Southwest Companion Pass

These cards are the easiest way to earn the coveted Companion Pass but this is not the best timing. To earn the Companion pass you need to earn 110,000 points in a calendar year and you’ll have that pass for until the end of the following calendar year.

If you get both personal cards then you will earn 104,000 points including the bonus and the $4,000 in spending to earn the bonus. I’m sure you can also figure out a way to quickly earn another 6,000 points (hint: transfer hotel points). That’s in case you want to wait for the 60K Business Premier offer.

The thing is that if you apply now, by the time you complete the spending and the points post, you’ll only have the companion pass for a a few months this year and then all of next year. It’s best to wait till December, or January to be safer. That way, all your 110,000 points will post early in the year so you’ll have the Companion Pass for almost two years.

Why is the Companion Pass so valuable? Because your Companion, which can be whoever you choose, can fly with you for free on Southwest when you have Companion Pass status. And to make things even better, you Companion Pass works on paid and award flights.

Post your Referrals

You can post you referrals in the comments below, but you need to share this post on Facebook or Twitter and provide a link to the post on the “website” field when you comment. I’m not very strict about that this rule, but please give something in return for posting your referrals. Only post referrals for the best available offer please.
